Final Game U15 Nelson- North Otago
Finals day arrived and Nelson were pumped and ready to taken in North Otago for the second time. Holly Melville got hit with a ball in the nose at warm up which unsettled the team. Our start, even though we were stronger, lacked the final touch. After some fierce attack from our forwards of Jess Davidson, Karishma Patel and Ruby Campbell we finally got the first one in after 5 min by Caitlin Clementson. The rest of the first half saw Nelson holding their own but struggling to put any goals in the back of the net.
The second half saw Nelson come out strong. We got a penalty where the push went to Jess and she passed it to Demi Mant who scored our second goal. Nelson continued where we got another PC. Jess got one off the goalies pad into the back of the net but this was disallowed. We held our own and finally survived winning 2-0. Nelson were proud to have won 4 and lost 2 games and claim 9th position.
Our captain Jess Davidson earned herself MVP for the tournament.
A big thanks to our supporters for travelling over for our girls.
